In response to a letter from Grey, Paget confirms that the picture he mentioned before was the 'Adoration of the three Kings', as suggested by Dr. Becker; in Copenhagen it is thought to be definitely an original [by Raphael]. He will have the 'Apothecary' photographed as requested, and will convey the Prince Consort's thanks to Mr Thiele, and he will write again concerning the drawings in the latter's collection.
